German federal elections: what will the consequences be for the European continent?

More than a federal election, the recent German elections will clearly have a major impact on European policy. Whatever the format of the coalition that emerges in the coming weeks, Germany's new political configuration will clearly have an impact on the French Presidency in the first half of next year, as well as on the Conference on the Future of Europe, which needs this great country to succeed. Because of the peculiarities of the German electoral system, no winner has yet been decided, but the result of this election nevertheless confirms the country's political stability.
